Experts and punters show their silky skills
With Spring racing on the horizon, Racenet tipster Cameron Happ has got himself in great form for a serious crack at the pinnacle on the racing calendar. Happ's performance this week resembled a seasoned Group 1 winner, cantering home for victory in a barrier trial.
In the past seven days, Happ tipped 5 winners from 6 best bets, resulting in 348% profit on turnover (POT) or more than two grand from $100 win bets.
There is nothing Happhazard about the Racenet form analyst's work. Since starting to record his selections back in 2012 Cameron Happ has maintained a strike rate that sees him tip a winner every four tips. He is one of the rare form analysts that boasts a life-time profit making his followers cash from over 1,150 selections recorded over a six year period.
RSN race caller Adam Crettenden also put his silky skills on show. 'Cretters' was the leading profit maker this week, chalking up $2,520 from $100 win bets in the past seven days.
These 7 winners from 15 tips came in at average odds of $5.74, driving an impressive 168% POT.
For those unsure whose tips to get behind, following people who have an intimate knowledge of the ins and outs of race day is often a good strategy. That's why jockeys and race callers like Cretters, seem to do well with their selections more times than not.
The punter who showed that his tipping skills were just as silky as the experts was none other than Ipswich local The Silk!
Like many of us, The Silk is an all-round sports and racing nut. A regular patron of the Sunshine State's sports, horse racing, harness and greyhound racing scene, he's proven just how much he knows about at least one of those sports this week.
Over the past seven days, The Silk found 9 winners from 15 tips on Queensland races, a 60% strike rate, which yielded 58% POT. That effort capped off a winning streak of seven profitable days from his last 10.
The winning story doesn't end there for The Silk.
In the past 30 days, he has tipped 30 horses, returning a very respectable 30% POT. Go back even further, and you'll find that The Silk is still in profit, with 16% POT from 142 tips over the past three months.
Go all the way back and cover his tips over the past 365 days, and The Silk is still in profit. Now that's silky tipping.
